It’s official!!! I’m writing another Christmas novella for Avon! Yay!!! Look for ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS A DUKE this December. This Regency anthology will also feature stories from USA Today bestselling author, Ashlyn Macnamara, along with Valerie Bowman and Tiffany Clare. I’m so blessed to be listed among such amazing authors.
THE MADDENING LORD MONTWOOD will be released one month from today!! YAY!!! And since I’m really terrible at waiting, I thought I’d post a sneak peek into Lucan and Frances’ story.
“While I admire the stern workday countenance you employ to set an example for others, using a little smile in the market could do wonders for your basket.”
He was talking about flirting. Flirting was one thing Frances never did. She’d seen how a friendly smile could give a man the wrong ideas. In her opinion, it was far better to know the character of the man beforehand. “I suppose you would have me remove my spectacles and bat my lashes as well.”
Lucan turned to face her. Slowly, he revealed a grin that only hinted at the dimple lurking there. It hinted at other things too. Scandalous things. She was certain of it because a ripple of desire stirred inside of her.
“No, Miss Thorne, always wear your spectacles.” He leaned forward, the brim of his hat close to hers. “They act like a veil, making a man wonder about the eyes behind them. A man starts to imagine being the one who’ll steam up your lenses.”
I’ve been a fan of college football since my grandfather introduced me to the magic of the game on Saturday afternoons when I was young girl. Years later, I infected DH with the fever for the Fighting Irish and then both of our boys. Now, it’s a family tradition to plan every autumn Saturday around the football schedule and watch the game together.
I don’t obsess over the scores, or even know everything about the game; I just enjoy it.
My youngest, DS 2.0, plays high school football. I encourage him to play for the fun of the game and not to obsess over scores. It’s more important to play with heart (aka: “Accept your mother’s lack of skill when she’s playing a game of catch with you.”) 🙂
DS 2.0 is gearing up for football practice. Earlier today, I threw a series of “slants,” “hitches,” and “fades” to him. Not to brag or anything, but a few of my passes were even on target. And a bonus: minimal eye-rolling.
I loved writing the Wallflower Wedding Series, The Rakes of Fallow Hall Series, and getting to know the characters and their families. It was difficult to say goodbye. However, beginning something fresh, new and completely unrelated to the previous books sparks excitement inside me.
I’m currently working on a proposal for a new series and I’m already obsessed with these characters and their stories. Unfortunately, this process isn’t foolproof. My first round of book titles flopped. My second round received a bland response (definitely not promising). And now my third attempt is trapped somewhere inside my head.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the perfect title just revealed itself? Landing on my windowsill in the claw of a carrier pigeon… Emerging in ghostly writing on the steamed-up bathroom mirror… Burned onto a piece of toast… Spelled out in tea leaves… Or even, hand delivered by Gerard Butler to my door… (not that I’ve given that idea any thought at all…) 🙂
The truth is, there is magic in the right book title. You always remember the really great ones: Perfect, by Judith McNaught; A Knight in Shining Armor, by Jude Devereaux; Devil in Winter, by Lisa Kleypas; On the Way to the Wedding, by Julia Quinn; A Kiss at Midnight, by Eloisa James… And the list goes on and on.
Great titles + great stories = magic. It’s as simple as that. Right?
Right now, I could use a bit of magic (and a visit from Gerard Butler). 😀
It’s truly uncanny how closely these people resemble the characters I had pictured in my mind. Of course, my Regency era hero and heroine aren’t actually werewolves from London, but my guess is that they are moonlighting… and time traveling. 😉
